Here is a nice break from all of the heavy stuff I’ve been posting here about Dad and life recently. Please enjoy.

I survived the mother-daughter weekend!

I had a mother-daughter weekend in the DC area. A cousin got married and Mom asked me to be her date. Dad is doing pretty well, but his health ups and downs mean he’s less likely to enjoy all of the standing around a wedding reception can entail, or a four-hour car ride.

I was [mostly] happy to step in, for the chance to see relatives and to try to see old friends in DC, time permitting.

The wedding was lovely.

‘Cause I’m a blonde

Yep, yet another post about my hair. I think about my hair a lot.

I went to my charming stylist Thomas’s apartment on the Lower East Side for highlights and a trim. He made my hair a little blonder than I expected, but I think I like it.

It looks much lighter in person, I think. And I’ll use undereye concealer in the future.

T and his boyfriend have the sweetest Schnauzer who answers to Yoko.

Happily, my allergies were kept at bay.

Have a great weekend, lovely friends.
